Limited Edition 26/1000 Signed Renoir Sepia Engraving from 'L'Assommoir' by Emile Zola 1909.

Originally crafted by renowned French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) as an illustration to 'L'Assommoir', a book by Emile Zola, this unique sepia engraving was not issued until 1909 when it was published by Theodore Duret in 'Die Impressionisten' as 'unveroffentlichte zeichnung' (un-published drawing). It is claimed by art historians to be 'one of the most important drawings to be produced during the years of high Impressionism'.

Published during the artist's lifetime and actually entitled 'Les Filles d'Ouvriers se Prominant sur le Boulevard Exterieur' and sub titled 'Nana Pauline et Autres', it originally appeared in black and white in chapter 11 (page 368) of Zola's book published in 1878.

Measuring 8 3/8" x 5 1/2" it is signed in the print lower left, is triple matted with linen under Perspex and framed in gilt 18 1/2" x 15 1/2". I bought it several years ago framed and have never removed the backing. I am selling it framed.

The original brown ink over black chalk drawing (see last photo), is in the Regenstein collection in the Art Institute of Chicago and a long lost earlier version of the same composition sold in 2003 for $190,00.. making this Antique engraving a very affordable option.

I have never seen another copy of this rare engraving, and it would make a fine addition to a collection of Impressionist work.
